I'm planning on giving my girls their gifts at my shower (either before or after, not around all the guests).  Like @calgarybride2015 said, I have enough stuff to bring down, so I don't want to lug down a bunch of tote bags when I don't have to! Plus, that way they'll know what they have so they don't bring down anything they don't need (like I'm guessing they'd already have brought down some kind of tote, so if they already have this one they won't end up bringing two). I was with you though--a part of me really wanted to give it to them while we were actually there in "wedding-mode," but I think it's just more practical to do it before.

First I think your gift ideas are great! If you want to enjoy with them you should definitely do it before the wedding. I'm planning to have a DIY SPA day with my beautiful bridesmaids the weekend before my wedding day. That way we are all going to be ready for the trip and can spend quality time together.

I ended up giving the gifts the night before when we did a quick rehearsal. Mind you, mine didn't have makeup or anything in it, just hangers for their dress and a robe for the next morning. I paid for everyone's hair and makeup though, so that was part of the gift.

I was thinking about having breakfast or lunch with the girls and moms and giving them out there... then that means I will have to lug them to where ever we eat. Or while we are getting ready. I ordered them custom bags already, I plan to order them hangers, maybe a rollerball perfume, thank you cards, maybe personalized flasks, sleepshirt.. I have 8

So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.
